Peer pressure can be positive as well as negative. Read on to know more about the positive and negative effects of peer pressure.
Peer pressure is all about being accepted by the group. Just like adults, teens too get caught in the mesh of this urge to fit in. In the process they often fail to realise that they might be indulging in activities that are either directly or potentially harmful to their well-being.
Effects of Positive Peer Pressure
If the peer group happens to be in school, you will discover a lot of positive changes happening in your teenager. Since the urge to ‘belong’ to a peer group is all about feeling included and accepted, there is also this natural tendency to behave and become ‘like’ other members of a peer group. Therefore when the members of the peer group believe in doing well in class and doing their regular lessons with care, you will find your child also following suit.
